The Gandhiji Gene

I have been struggling with a question for quite a long time: what did Gandhi have that other people did not?

I think that it is conviction, commitment and a deep love for truth. All of us know what is morally right and  morally wrong. We know what is truth, a lie and all the gray areas where we all at sometime or the other time compromise our values. The difference between most people and him is that he tried his best (as a human) to go that extra mile to commit to purity. The purity that truth alone can bring. He paid the price to stick to it. He suffered, fasted, got beaten up and continously purified himself to stick to as close to the truth as he could. Although this seems idealistic and almost impossible for me to practice on all levels, it is something to strive for.
